    Cool...my GTalk is droidieang at gm....... hit me up if you need any help. I have the system and framework folders ready to go and just need the rest of the dump to port it over for D2 with no Star Wars stuff. I also will have the Star Wars full ROM for those that want it on D2.

    I would complete the root steps I provided you earlier - via the terminal app.

    It really is easy. Just take it a step at a time and verify what you type.

    I got my phone yesterday. At first, when I heard about it, I didn't even want it. I figured it was limited edition and would be sold out really quick. But then my mom came home with the dummy phone (she works at vzw) and I loved it, so she ordered it for me. And like I said, I got it yesterday and love it :)

    I've got one, too. Had regular Droid 2 for a few days, then took advantage of 30-day return policy to swap it for this bad boy. I'm waiting for the sbf to become available before I experiment with it (though I did root it already).

    Does anyone know if custom ROMs for regular D2 will work on this? I know it'd be a firmware step backwards, but I tried Epic Unleashed and mostly loved it. But I don't want to try unless I know it won't devour my phone (even though I do have a clockwork recovery backup).

    Just wait a little bit and look in the ROMs section here - Motaboy is going to have 2.4.5 ROMs (what's on the R2D2) out later tonight if he hits the schedule he set for himself. :)

    You are correct in noting that there is not a D2 2.4.5 SBF at this point, so the R2D2 "go back" is a little more complicated than that for the standard D2s right now, but it's still pretty easy.

    What you would do is SBF to 2.2.20, then root, load the D2 bootstrapper and install Clockwork recovery, and then restore the backup you made (you did make a backup before you modded anything, right? :)) of your R2D2 system right after you rooted it but before you changed anything else.

    Then you're back to where you started. If you wanted to return the phone for some reason, unroot and factory reset and it's completely stock again. :)

    Thanks! I knew most of that stuff already (precautions, returning to stock before returning to store), but I'm sure not everyone did. I read on XDA that 2.2.20 won't work on the R2D2, and the poor guy bricked his phone. So...I think I'll wait.

    But good to know a ROM is incoming tonight!

    By the way, someone earlier in the thread mentioned that the 123 easy-root worked for their X but didn't work for them on the R2D2. Give it a few tries. It works, I promise. I've successfully done it (and unrooted) with that method twice...long story.

    The notification sounds are really nice. There was a lot more r2d2 noises than I realized. I can't wait to get then on my droid x :)

    That was me that tried the 123 ez root on the r2d2 and it didn't work. Did you use that method to root your r2d2?

    Yeah, the bootloader gets annoying though. Hearing Artoo bleep and bloop at full volume with absolutely no way to shut his metal trap gets embarrassing when booting in public and is quickly draining my love for the character. :p

    Yes. I wasn't sure it would work at first (and then I had an unrelated problem with the adb program) but I tried it a few times and it finally recognized and worked. Make sure if USB debugging doesn't show up in the notification window in PC mode, switch to Charge Only. The USB debugging thing is crucial.

    Where'd you see that post on XDA?

    R2D2 is the same HW as the standard D2...if he really bricked his Droid (and I've only ever heard of developers futzing around bricking anything), I'd initially be much more suspect of something not being done right, or other issues, than the SBF not being compatible. I'd like to read more about it.

    Yeah, I found it.

    I would not set that as fact w/out more info...it is good to caution people about it so folks are cautious, but one post does not necessarily indicate there is a problem w/the SBF on the R2D2 yet. Who knows if this person knew what they were doing, or made an operator error while SBF-ing, etc.

    I'm asking some questions on the thread over there to get more info...

    Sorry for causing unnecessary alarm. I just always want a sure backup plan in case of disaster when trying new, untested things.
    And yeah, I noticed the person seemed a bit discombobulated. Hopefully you can help shed some light on that.

    I'm the dude who made that post.

    What info would you like about the brickage?

    I used RSDlite 4.7. the flash get to the reboot point and then got a bootloader error that said "bootloader err:A5,70,70,00,1f". I found this was the same error that DroidX users who OTA'd to their 2.2 update and then tried to SBF back to 2.1.
